Why is his price so high? Is he that good in RS or is it because of the 2nd inning collection?

SDS

Collections

SDS

I'd say both, he's actually quite nasty

Sold. Thanks man.

Rip he was like 30k not too long ago

I picked two up at 28K like 2 days before end of program. That paid off well

SDS

He's Filthy! All his off speed stuff is sick!

SDS

yeah I cannot bring myself to spend the stubs on him when my rotation is already where I like it:

  • DeGrom
  • Cole
  • Burns
  • Bauer
  • Sale

deGrom and Burnes are the only 2 that come even close to Fernando.

I was going to say if he plays HOF or better in RS, he only has one viable pitcher in Burnes and maybe DeGrom.

I respectfully disagree. I have had success with each of those pitchers -- I pitched 8 perfect innings with DeGrom until the dude I was playing quit. I do not want to spend 70K on a lefty I have no intention of putting into my rotation. I am saving to complete the LAD and SD collections in order to beef-up my bullpen. I am very happy with my very viable 5-man rotation. I hope you like yours too.

No worries. No, I don't like mine. I started to do my collections so I sold Hershiser, Seaver and Fernandez. I did the NL West and Braves. Wanted to make another run at WS but not with Castillo etc so I bought back Hershiser and Fernandez. Still don't like my 4 and 5 too much but those collections drained me and since I never pull anything, it takes a long time to get to around 70k.

I have a much better chance at winning 9 games of BR than pulling a decent diamond from a pack. I have opened well over 500 packs and have packed 5 diamonds that probably totaled 80k total. Hard to do collections with those pulls. No, I do not want to flip cards. I would rather scratch my eyes out.

Yeah thats why I sold him. A good 45k profit. And I'll buy him back when his price settles after the collection. Plus i want to see how that 88 madbum plays online

He doesn’t throw hard but he’s nasty due to huge variations in speeds on his off speed stuff. And fastball is at least hard enough to keep ppl honest. I wouldn’t drop 80k on him but he’s certainly worthy of a rotation spot.

Just finished a ranked game. Opponent was just over 600. Here is the pitch spray chart.

Part one

Part two

Only two Ranked games so far. 18 IP, 42 K. Yes, that's two 21 strikeout performances. He's a very very good pitcher.

It's not the pitcher.. It's your opponent. Majority of the people that play this game, especially in RS, are terrible at picking up and then making contact on off speed pitches. When I go against a person using him I sit back and get ready for a long boring game. I'll let him tire himself out throwing junk pitches for balls all game. Eventually they start to creep back into the strike zone and then make their mistakes. Like clockwork.

That said... i cannot stand hitting against him lol.
